We’re fast becoming the nation’s largest employer of Nurse Practitioners; offering a superior professional environment and incredible opportunities to make a difference in the lives of patients. This growth is not only a testament to our model’s success but the efforts, care, and commitment of our Nurse Practitioners.
Our Complex Adult and Geriatric Fellowship Program is a joint venture between Optum, a UnitedHealth Group Company, and the George Washington University School of Nursing. This innovative twelve-month (12) fellowship experience will equip you with the skills to think critically and practice confidently in managing complex adults and geriatrics across care settings. During their first year in the post-graduate fellowship program, fellows will take advanced nursing courses through George Washington University (GWU) School of Nursing paid for by Optum.
While completing your advanced nursing courses at GWU, this Fellowship Program consists of placement opportunities in one of two different business entities, Optum HouseCalls or Optum Institutional Special Needs Plans (ISNP).
HouseCalls: Serving millions of Medicare and Medicaid patients, Optum is the nation’s largest health and wellness business and a vibrant, growing member of the UnitedHealth Group family.

You will provide preventative and primary care for patients in assigned skilled nursing facilities and assisted living communities.
